M&H Plastics is expanding its Winchester, VA, facility in both size and production capacity. The plastic packaging provider plans to invest $6.2 million in order to expand its extrusion blowmolding, injection stretch blowmolding, and high‐speed decorating capabilities. It will create 20 new jobs, and also utilize 18 temporary positions, leading to an overall workforce increase of 76%.
M&H Plastics supplies plastic components and manufactures bottles, jars, flexible tubes, and closures for personal care, pharmaceutical, healthcare, and nutritional products.
Adding 50,000 sq ft, the expanded 110,000‐sq‐ft facility and equipment upgrades will create a 100% increase in production capability, the company reports in a press release.
“The Winchester community is a great fit for M&H Plastics because of its skilled and committed workforce. In addition, the area’s location affords M&H the logistical infrastructure needed to quickly and efficiently access our expanding customer‐base and suppliers in the United States market. We’ve enjoyed a prosperous relationship with Frederick County and look forward to continuing our commitment to the community,” commented Kurt Nyberg, CEO of M&H Plastics, in the release.
The Winchester, VA, facility is the company’s first U.S. manufacturing location, which has operated in the community since 2005. This expansion is M&H Plastics's second one since their location, including a $2 million expansion in 2009. Headquartered in Beccles, England, M&H Plastics also maintains manufacturing operations in England. Virtually all operations are conducted in-house, on site, from concept design, through toolmaking, production, artwork, and decoration.
